Chinese smartphone maker Huawei may be working on a new smartphone aimed at the mid-range market. The device was revealed in a TENAA listing showcasing a usual smartphone with a dual camera setup on the back of the device along with a fingerprint scanner and what appears to be a dual camera setup on the front of the device. It is likely that the device might be a successor to the Huawei Y9 that was released earlier this year in April. There is not much known about the device in terms of specifications as the listing is incomplete.

According to a report by GSMArena, it is possible that the device will come with a notched display along with the power button and volume rocker on the right side of the device. The back of the device appears to me made from glass which is similar to the design on the Huawei P20 Lite that was launched back in March of this year. The report also indicated that Huawei may go with its in-house HiSilicon Kirin 710 as the processor in the device. For comparison, the Y9 came with Kirin 659.

According to the listing, the device will come with the model number JKM-AL00. The listing did point out that it will come with a dual-SIM slot that is a standard in Android-powered devices in 2018.

The only other thing that we can gather from the listing is the fact that the 4G VoLTE-capable device has been certified by TENAA was certified on August 22, 2018 for a period of three years. Huawei has not issued any statement about the listing at the time of writing.
